    Of course NOT. Very unlikely that will ever happen.

    No, the Catalyst driver does not use KMS.

    During the installation process the radeon KMS code is disabled, then after reboot the Catalyst driver starts up the "traditional UMS way".

    the traditional UMS way means in real=Obsolete

    Yes dirct2D brings 'EXA'(i know its not exa) to fglrx but fglrx is still obsolete by lagging support for KMS!

    in the end.... the FGLRX will be Obsolete by lagging KMS!
